Band-aids don't fix arrow wounds


Austin Aries just mentioned he's making more in the next 6 weeks than he made in the last 4 months of WWE now. It wasn't a bad idea for Triple H to sign all these indie guys, the bad idea was not expanding NXT to 2 hours or giving them another show and keeping them as far away from Vince as possible

The bad move on Hunter's part was not taking out a hit on Vince like a year ago.

Rusev should be part of and on top of the Cruiserweight division as he is under 205 kilos.

You've got to admit, you are kind of implausible

There was a storyline in World Class were Gen Skandor Akbar got the Light Heavyweight Champion Eric Embry to put it on the line against Cactus Jack. And when Jack won the title, Akbar claimed that WCCW had raised the weight limit. They hadn't, and Cactus quickly lost it back to Embry, but it was fun little storyline.

Speaking of which his WWE is handling things with Neville shows they are clueless. If they had any sense they would not grant him a release even if he never intends to return. They're now going to open the floodgates and let others follow him out. Thanks for helping New Japan, ROH and the indies WWE!

It's a Roque post. Take anything he says with a massive grain of salt.

I mean he makes posts like these:

People can say what they want. ROH keeps selling out shows. Their business is up from last year. They got a sellout of over 2500 for the Chicago area in a few weeks. Final Battle is already a hot seller and come Mania week they will be in a near 10,000 seat arena.

I doubt ROH will come even close to selling out a 10,000 seat arena.

Roque spent literally half a year telling Rovert Adam Cole was absolutely not leaving ROH and going to WWE/NXT, then when Cole did exactly that, Roque almost verbatim went "whatever, he's overrated anyway"

People are acting like WWE is sticking to ROH in a big way by having Corino in a guest trainer and then having him do a website inter view. Don't these people ever think that Corino is not only still under contract to ROH and had to get permission to do all this, but that ROH clearly gave him the Okay? Or ever think that Corino is playing the game and knows how to play leverage games with ROH, which is what so many others wrestlers in the company do? The Bucks, Lethal, Fish and O'Reilly play this same game every year and people always fall for it thinking this will be the time they jump to WWE.

These breakdowns always occur between Elgin and ROH. It's been happening for the past few and it's nothing new. No big deal. They'll make up again soon enough and he still works for ROH's partner

Roque11 posted:

The whole idea of Kyle to WWE is laughable for a number of reasons. Kyle plays this game every week year with ROH. People have jump the gun on this like they did with Hero.

Roque11 posted:

I'll call it right now. Between now and June 10th we'll hear about Adam Cole booking more dates past June 10th. Between the June 5th and June 10th we'll hear that all the other ROH names have once again been told you guys will have to wait at least 30-60 more days.

RoH - has unpleasant political views and forces them on people through their television networks

WWE - has unpleasant political views and a long history of sexism, racism, probably sexual assault by their owner, the wife of the owner a high ranking member of the trump administration, basically enslaves their employees by unlawfully treating them as independent contractors, destroyed the brains of countless employees with dangerous matches and then ditched them afterward, once had employees molest children on the job, covered up a murder by an employee, a million other things I forget

yeah, you're right
